This is my first time making a gift basket but I have to say, it was really fun putting one together.
This year, not only I wanted to give my brother and sister-in-law a gift for Christmas, I wanted it to be a gift that would bring them memories of our culture and traditions.
After weeks of trying to figure out what I could do, while shopping at Macy's, I run across a beautiful ceramic tapas set from a new collection of ceramics hand painted in Spain. I took that idea and I run with it!!! LOL
I bought a basket and set out to find everything I needed to make it special.
We have here a wonderful market full of gourmet food from all over the world and I was able to find many things from Spain to create a nice basket for them with the food we grew up with.
It is nothing fancy, but it is from the heart.
I was able to find some Turron, which is one of the Christmas sweets that we grew up with.
Tapas ceramic set
Put some pretty red filler in the basket
Added a bottle of Spanish wine
Look at the little bull hanging from the wine bottle. I thought that was original.
Two wine glasses with some little bags of candy inside
Added a few more "goodies"
Olive oil and vinegar, also from Spain
I put two Christmas flowers on each side of the basket to make it more festive
Ready to wrap it up
After that, I just added a bow made of red and gold ribbon
All finished! What do you all think? I hope they like it!
Only two more days left for Christmas. Are you guys ready?
I pray for a happy and safe Holiday season for all of you.
